york city mayor michael bloomberg, have joined the call for action this week at a summit on gun violence in baltimore. >> the rate of firearms homicide in america is 20 times higher than it is in other economically advanced nations. we have got to change that. and it has to start this week. with real leadership from the white house. >> woodruff: maryland and delaware are also weighing new laws, as two new polls show national support for more gun control. the pew research center found a majority favors banning assault weapons and tracking gun sales. and a "washington post"/abc news survey out today found more than half of americans support a ban on assault weapons while nearly two-thirds would ban high capacity magazines. 55% say they are for placing armed guards in schools, a measure favored by the national rifle association. violent video games have also been mentioned by both the n.r.a. and the white house as a concern. but today there was new controversy over the n.r.a.'s new practice range app for i-pads and i-phones, recommended for ages 4 and up. all of this has gun and am

the n.r.a. and you have michael bloomberg spending money on this and defeating a-rated n.r.a. candidates. so the whole calculus has changed. it used to be the n.r.a. was the one game in town on the money front and the pac front. that's changed. o there's a real cost now for standing with the n.r.a. and i that is as you would say a game changer in that regard. >> brown: dr. gold, how does it change your world? the evolving politics here and events like newtown? >> well, it's -- you know, from my perspective-- and i'm not a gun expert, obviously-- but from my perspective it's really unfortunate that it takes these kinds of events to move forward with our country to make a stronger commitment to providing for mental health care needs of our citizens. it shouldn't have to take something like this for something to become a social priority. >> brown: but now that it's here, as you were saying before, there's still going to be many, many questions about how you implement it. last night we talked about new york state and various states taking some proposal. there's going to be confid

12. and mayor michael bloomberg has pledged to rebuild new york's devastated coastal areas. >> let me be clear. we are not going to abandon the waterfront. we're not going to leave the rockaways or coney island or staten island south shore. but we can't just rebuild what was there and hope for the best. we have to build smarter and stronger and more sustainably. >> to do so, the governors of new york, new jersey and connecticut have asked for $82 billion in federal disaster relief aid. >> we get a further update from two reporters covering the post- sandy situation. a reporter from the "new york times" and mike schneider, managing editor and anchor of new jersey today on public television. sarah, start with the areas you've been looking at. what major problems persist weeks after the storm? >> well, it depends where you look. in new jersey, some towns are still on lockdown. so they're really at a standstill. people have been able to maybe cart out dry wall, clean up the mold, but they can't progress. they can't figure out if they want to raise up their houses, or just build it the

sense safety measure s. that's what michael bloomberg says. no it is an attack on the second amendment. it is an attack on those americans who purchasedded and legally use firearms, who never committed a criminal act, who have never done anything wrong. they can say that it doesn't infringe upon their rights but in fact it does. now every amendment the first amendment you can't famously yell fire in a crowded theater. the second amendment is also subject to reasonable limits. the supreme court has upheld that. but they're strictly looked at. you have to demonstrate that they really impact things and that they're really necessary. and the problem that we have is that none of the things that they've suggested are going to do any good. they're asking the question, judy, what do we do about guns? the question should be what do we do to prevent the kinds of things that happened in connecticut? we don't think that they're asking that question but they're pursuing their own agenda. >> woodruff: they say that's what they're doing. >> i know they do. woodruff: gabrielle giffords the f
